did the set-up (kinda), last night (need longer, balanced ICs...to run the C658 directly into my active Dynaudio X14As).
I have to admit: as this is my first exposure/experience, with BluOS; I'm a little confused...about exactly
how it works
The Dual Band Wi-Fi, and 2-way Qualcomm aptX HD Bluetooth features...are fine; and I understand desirable by many. But I'm not sure, I
really see the need. I have a hard wire, in my Listening Room...and I always prefer to go, wired v. wireless; when I can.
So I was kinda caught off-guard...when I hadn't bothered to attach my antennas; that I couldn't set-up ROON. Based on my vast
experience, streaming; I would have thought...the Ethernet port, would have acted as a "source" (sort of like the Bridge, on PS Audio's streamers). But...with Ethernet connected, via the hard wire; my iPad was saying it could not connect with the C658. Only after I attached the antennas, did it work.
So...does that mean, the iPad
throws the signal; to the C658? Then how does the Ethernet run play in?? Still sorting that out
Also...looking at the feature bullets; I realize...I didn't see ANYTHING, about the Dirac
. Either in the set-up or manual. (Though I did see this, whereas I didn't before "Stereo Subwoofer Output"; though I still have no way of testing, if that's just 2 x mono or stereo. As I don't have 1 sub, much less 2).
That's about it for now.
